Senior Techniquest Glyndwr officials have today fought back against criticism of the Science Discovery Centre recruiting staff as young as four years of age.
Reports which broke in the last week in the Daily Slime, which has made claims that the Wrexham based centre is actively recruiting children to work for them in a ‘goo’ based environment have finally received comment amidst much speculation.
Centre manager Scot Owen hit out at critics who’ve lambasted the move by calling for an end to ‘tabloid tittle-tattle’.
“This may be an unorthodox practice but Techniquest Glyndwr believes in setting the trend in regards to employment opportunities in North Wales” said Owen.
“We’ve searched far and wide for the best Slime testers in the country but nobody fit the bill.
“After exhausting the recruitment process we finally made a breakthrough when one of our younger visitors began making the most incredible progress with our disgusting slime.
“After much negotiation the young man in question finally accepted our offer of two bags of sweets and a company toy car to join the team”.
The last week has seen numerous comments under the social media hashtag #MyTQG of varying opinion from positive responses to cries of ‘where are the parents in all of this?’
Clair Griffiths, a senior slime officer with Techniquest Glyndwr has called for calm in the media slime-storm.
“This has taken much of the media’s attention in the last few days but it’s vital to remember that we’ve made some amazing breakthroughs” said Griffiths.
“Hari has already made massive progress and helped cement our place further as a must see venue in not just North Wales, but the world”.
It’s also believed that the official World Records Committee revealed that four-year old Hari Williams had created the gooiest slime on record, beating that of 6 year old Sally Evans who hit headlines in 2005.
It’s as yet unclear what the next steps will be as this story develops, but it’s believed that Techniquest Glyndwr have arranged for interviews with numerous children in the coming days ahead of the biggest Slime Event in decades.
However, potential employees are encouraged to apply for the role below.
